I'm sure that Shalleck was "curious" with at least one of the goons.
 
2006-02-13 08:26:00 AM
The monkey, created in 1939 by Hans and Margret Rey

Alan Shalleck, the guy killed, was a co-writer on some of the books

Set that chimp that ate half the guy's face and penis off on them in a caged death match.

Kinda farked up that he missed the movie debut by a matter of days...

Hard to say, but it was sort of implied with the odd way that the story was worded.

Hopefully now the two gentleman in question will get some quality alone time before being swiftly executed, but I realize it'll be more like quality buttsecks time and unlimited appeals of their death penalty convictions.

They should die by slow impalement.
 
2006-02-13 08:32:26 AM
didnt matter if this guy co-wrote or wrote the books, I hope the two killers get 1)gang assraped 2)fried on the chair with low voltage.

Thats 2 for 3 actual "news" stories with misleading headlines today.

One of the perps is named Ditto? Somebody who is more awake please say something funny about it. Twice.

At the same time.

Lemmy Kilmister

I agree, but the two things should happen at the same time.

how the hell are you going to kill an old man who wrote childrens books? for farks sake isn't there enough evil rich people to screw with?
 
2006-02-13 08:42:31 AM
Boynton Beach police say Rex Ditto and Vincent Puglisi surrendered and confessed to killing Alan Shalleck.

Rex Ditto sounds like some pornstar name. Vincent Puglisi, not so much.

Was he curious "blue", or curious "yellow"? I'm guessing the latter.

Curious George got me hooked on ether.

You can say THAT again!

This guy had NOTHING TO DO with the books you read as a kid. He edited the "knockoff" books that were written by Margaret Rey and a bunch of random people after her husband Hans died.

The headline isn't misleading, it's completely wrong.

Ditto.

Farking scum need to be beaten, flogged and given a lemon soaked barbwired baseball bat taken to their arses, before being hung upside down by their toes.
 
2006-02-13 09:03:01 AM
Yeah, what is up with the plethora of just plain stupid inaccurate headlines lately?

My first simulpost. Was it good for you too?
 
2006-02-13 09:13:04 AM
Someone needs to fix that headline. As has been said, he was an editor NOT the freakin' creator.
 
2006-02-13 09:15:53 AM
I think they should be locked in a monkey cage with 50 horny and angry monkeys.
 
2006-02-13 09:17:49 AM
So the trick really is to write a completey wrong headline that shows one did not rtfa?
 
2006-02-13 09:18:05 AM
I smell publicity stunt.

Have 'em watch the movie. And then watch it again. And again. If it's a good movie, they'll stay sane through about the 10th viewing. If it sucks, they'll be nuts by number 4.
 
2006-02-13 09:23:21 AM
The article says he was the co-creator. So, not completely the submitter's fault.

His attackers, two men he had met via a gay sex network, were tracked down using the victim's phone records. They confessed to the crime.

Don't let your facts get in the way of my outrage.

Invented?
 
2006-02-13 09:30:35 AM
Dunno... Sounds like a Mob hit...
 
2006-02-13 09:32:30 AM
Good thing they got a free plug for the movie in at the end of the article. I thought that was a nice touch of class.
 
2006-02-13 09:36:51 AM
Man, I hate monkeys more than most people do, but killing the dude is a bit excessive.

Even if that damned movie makes me scream, every time I see an ad for it. *shudder*
 
2006-02-13 09:41:23 AM
The monkey, created in 1939 by Hans and Margret Rey

They actually escaped the Nazi invasion of Paris on bicycle, taking only whatever they could grab and fit in the baskets. And most of what they grabbed were Curious George manuscripts in the making.

True story.

I remember that. That was the first Curious George book I ever read.

Hollywood is resorting to murder to generate buzz about their lame movies now? Wow, and I thought Walt Disney was a cold-blooded mutha.

Yeah. That means this man should get no credit.
I however, think differently and think its the end of CG.
He did edit and help with the cartoon. get your facts straight.

Goodbye Curious George
